Laura Barreiro, a member of our MICE Department, tells us about her experience in the Argentinean Northwest.
Nature, culture, peace, diversity, colors… All is combined in the Argentinean Northwest.
Salta’s city, with its colonial architecture, its narrow streets, the surrounding hills and its various parks and beautiful churches, is the ideal starting point for discovering the region.
An outstanding experience is visiting Cafayate. The accessing route does not stop amazing the travelers. The mountain road dazzles with the changes in landscapes, the variety of geological formations, the red colored earth…Cafayate belongs to the Salta Wine Route. The main wine in this region is the Torrontes (white wine).
An essential visit is discovering the Calchaquies Valleys, with its imposing mountains, cornice roads, rivers, streams and charming little villages.
Another incredible visit is Salinas Grandes. These salt flats are an unforgettable white desert that contrast with the blue sky and amaze with their immensity.
Jujuy province also has the Quebrada de Humahuaca, which has been declared as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. Here, villages such as Tilcara, Humahuaca and Purmamarca (with its incredible Cerro de los Siete Colores -Hill of the Seven Colors-) are characterized by their traditions and the tranquility, surrounded by a wonderful natural area.
Another highlights? The regional gastronomy, folkloric music and people’s charm. Argentinean North is definitely a place not to be missed!
